CHICAGO (AP) - Rhode Island is set to become the 10th state to allow gay and lesbian couples to marry following a key vote in the state's General Assembly this week.
   
Gay marriage supporters are shifting their focus to other states, including Delaware, Minnesota, New Jersey, Oregon and Illinois.
   
In Illinois the state Senate approved gay marriage legislation on Valentine's Day. Supporters in the Illinois House say they're still a few votes short but hope a vote is held before the General Assembly adjourns this spring.
   
Gov. Pat Quinn supports the bill.
